Top judge faces sack for speaking out about immigrants.
Immigrants abusing benefits system
A senior judge faces the sack after saying that 'hundreds of thousands of immigrants' come to Britain to receive generous welfare payments.
Judge Ian Trigger was told yesterday that a disciplinary inquiry is to look at whether his criticisms of the links between crime, large-scale immigration and the welfare system were 'too political'.
The 65-year-old Crown Court judge, who has also served on immigration tribunals for just over a decade, made his remarks as he jailed an illegal immigrant and drug runner last month.
He stated facts and the government does not like the facts
Judge Trigger said the case illustrated how a 'lax' immigration policy had led to 'hundreds and hundreds of thousands' of immigrants arriving in Britain to claim generous welfare benefits.
And he warned that wasted welfare payments had helped double the national debt, with the burden falling on decent hard-working citizens.
That is the truth and freedom of speech should allow him to express what he feels is true.
